"Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon."
~ Dalai Lama
Hi! I am Stacey. I am a mom, Holistic Health Coach, and Private Chef. My training is from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the American Personal & Private Chef Association. I have also trained under Andrea Beaman in many areas of holistic health including: Holistic Health Cooking Certification; visual diagnosis, meridian diagnosis, healing herbs, our health related to the chakras, and more. I have a Bachelor's Degree with a concentration in Small Business Management from Southern New Hampshire University. I also have a Master’s degree in Digital Marketing.
After years of being sick and several misdiagnosis, I finally discovered my path to health in 2008. I almost forgot what it felt like to feel good. Really good! I was refered to the right alternative doctor and then I enrolled in IIN. I continued to heal myself through changes to my diet, and making some major life changes. I haven't looked back since.
I have spent over twenty years cooking for myself (and three children), as well as in cafes/restaurants, and in homes, learning the art of preparing beautiful nourishing food that tastes great and makes your tastebuds dance.
I've had a passion for delicious whole foods since I was a child. I am mostly self taught and my learning of new foods, techniques and skills will be lifelong. I am always looking for ways to improve my skills, prepare new dishes and offer new services that will improve the well-being of my clients, as well as myself and family.
I made the decision to expand my business in early 2013 by adding private chef to my services. In 2014, small event catering was added to my services offered. My goal is to inspire others to live a healthier life and fall in love one dish at a time.
I took a bit of time off from my private chef business to work on marketing and take a much needed pause, but it is calling me back with a renewed passion and so much more knowledge. Enter Soup CSA. I look forward to filling your bellies with goodness!!
